If I had to choose my favorite bird, it’s the flamingo for sure!  Tall, long legs and brightly dressed in pink feathers.  Maybe that’s one of the reasons I’ve always loved Lilly Pulitzer prints and pretty much anything with a flamingo on it.

And though flamingo designs can be kitschy and casual, they can also be sophisticated, with a surprise element of fun.  Take the amazing silk dress worn by Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie.  I’m obsessed with this fabric and the way she paired it with a unexpected red clutch.

If you’re not quite ready to go full-flamingo, look for a great accessory that will keep you hanging onto summer just a bit longer!
